What is Coachella?

Coachella is a music festival that happens in the middle of the desert of California. It started in 1969 so it's been happening for 46 years. Famous singers and bands come and perform. It is a crazy fun place to visit. Most people go to coachella during their Spring Break. Coachella starts on a Friday and goes on until Sunday, I know, it's a bummer that it is only three days, but don't worry because it is a 2 week event. So if you missed the first three days, there's always the next week.

What to Expect

First of all, since you're in the desert, you need to make sure you bring A LOT of sunscreen if you don't want to burn really bad and water if you don't want to dehydrate form the heat. The lineup for this year is something you can not miss! Some of the singers/bands that are performing are Vance Joy, Drake, Jack White, ACDC, and Tame Impala. I know from my experience of talking to my friends, they are most excited for Drake.
